Emily's favorites for the month are:

The Lightning Thief by: Rick Riordan

Percy Jackson thinks he is going crazy when characters from mythology start popping up everywhere. Several strange events lead up to Percy finding out that he is the son of one of the Greek gods. And worse he is the prime suspect in the disappearance of Zeus’s lightning bolt. Percy and his friends must travel across the country in 10 days to try and find the bolt to return to Zeus. This book is very fast-paced and exciting, and the rest of the series is just as good.

Revolution by: Jennifer Donnelly
Andi Alpers travels to Paris with her father in an effort to get over her depression. Her father was hired to match a heart’s DNA to that of the last dauphin of France. While there she finds the diary of Alexandrine Paradis, a girl that lived during the French Revolution, in an old guitar case. She was a friend of the dauphin of France and tried to rescue him from his fate. Andi and Alex both had a love of music that carries them through difficult times. Revolution is a very thought provoking book. A good read.
